    It's because, for it gives a reason for going to bed.

    Re: So\Because

    Now that everyone's certain it's because, I would venture to say that you would use "so" similar to the way that you would use "then". It shows that your actions or feelings were following by actions.

    It was cold outside, so I put on my sweater.

    I put on my sweater because it was cold outside.

    I went outside and then I put on my sweater.

    That's what it seems like, but I could be wrong as I didn't take it from a book or anything. :)

    Post Re: So\Because

    Poll Options I went to bed because I was tired.

    so
    because






    I think that it depends on the context :

    What was the reason for going to bed ?:"I was tired "
    ---->using " Because " is obligatory in this case .

    On the other hands ,

    What was the result after feeling tired ?:"I went to bed "

    ---->using "So"is obligatory in this case:
    I was tired,so i went to bed .


    Greetings.

    According to you, i say : "I learned hardly, so I was tired", It's Ok.

    Thank for advance.
